Brechin boss Darren Dods says his side have six cup finals still to play this season, after the Glebe Park men hit back from the loss of an early goal to beat League One play-off hopefuls Albion Rovers.
Brechin showed the never-say-die attitude which has typified their play in recent weeks as they made it a marvellous four wins in a row in March to further boost their hopes of avoiding relegation.
City are now a point above Cowdenbeath and level on points with Forfar in joint second-bottom spot.
Dods said: “Three weeks ago when we lost to Peterhead we were 10 points behind Cowdenbeath and seven behind Forfar. Now, after four wins we are level with Forfar and ahead of Cowdenbeath.
“Coming off the bottom will give us a boost. Albion have beaten us three times this season and they caught us with a sucker-punch early on, scoring with their first shot.
“Earlier in the season, 1-0 might have been game over but we now have a belief and some firepower up front.
“Our spirit never goes down and we now have people who can come off the bench and change things for us. We face a massive challenge at Dunfermline next week, but having laid our Albion Rovers hoodoo our confidence is high. We will go there and give it a go.”
Albion opened the scoring on 12 minutes. Spas Georgiev raced clear on the right and crossed for Alistair Coull to score with a low drive.
On 33 minutes, Andy Jackson did brilliantly to get to the line and his cutback was fired over by Lewis Spence.
Brechin went close again on 52 minutes when a first-time volley from Spence went wide.
The pace of Georgiev was Albion’s biggest weapon and he shot into the side-netting on 67 minutes. Two minutes later, a header from Paul McLean forced a save from visiting keeper Ross Stewart.
Brechin got the equaliser they deserved on 80 minutes when Robert Thomson shot home after a spot of pinball inside the box.
City went for glory and on 85 minutes a pass from Thomson was fired home by ex-Airdrie and Huddersfield striker Liam Coogans for a dramatic winner.
